Zweifel's Mini Model of the White House

No matter who you vote for this year, they won't be able to move into THIS house. Unless, of course, they are 2" tall. In honor of tomorrow's primaries in Texas and Ohio, we're featuring this labor of love from John and Jan Zweifel: The White House in Miniature.

The Zweifels and a group of close friends and family spent more than 500,000 hours building this 50 foot replica of the White House (one foot per inch). For the record, every single piece of furniture is hand carved, every rug hand stitched, and yes, every wall is hand painted. And it took 38 years!

But they're not quite over yet. You see, the Zweifels actually keep up with the trends of the White House decor and update the model to reflect the changes made during each administration. Talk about committing to a vision! Now, if Hillary Clinton moves into the White House, do you think she'll hang a sign with this slogan on it in the Oval Office?
